Stowe's Newest Conservation Project

The Stowe Land Trust has a long and successful history of land conservation and stewardship in the Stowe, VT area. The Stowe Land Trust is dedicated to the conservation of scenic, recreational, and productive farm and forest lands for the benefit of the greater Stowe community. 

The lastest project undertaken by the Stowe Land Trust is the preservation of The Kaiser Family Farm as a productive working farm. The Kaiser Family has maintained their farm in the scenic Nebraska Valley for decades. Stowe Land Trust is working with Vermont Land Trust and Christine Kaiser to conserve the 49-acre farm. Stowe Land Trust and Vermont Land Trust have arranged to purchase an easement on the Kaiser Farm, which will forever protect the farm from development and ensure that the farm will remain affordable to future farmers. The farm is one of the last remaining working farms in Stowe, and is a reminder of the town’s agricultural heritage. Through Vermont Land Trust's Farmland Access Program, a local farm family will be able to purchase the farm at an affordable price. 

The total cost of the project is $372,000, which includes the easement purchase, project related costs, and a contribution to Stowe Land Trust's Stewardship Endowment fund.  With the support of additional donors, The Stowe Land Trust has secured more than 85% of the necessary funds.  Now they need our help to raise the remaining funds.

Give today to help protect one of the last working farms in Stowe and support the next generation of Stowe farmers.
